what did they say?
I know I should have wrote some of the rest but I got lazy :(

"
The Good: Classic RPG, more polished than the FFIII remake.
The Bad: 3D style feels pokier than the 2D original, ultimately superfluous.
Farewell, My Easytype: Hope you like your RPGs challenging!

I was hoping for some more Nintendo-related rumors with E3 coming up so soon. Oh well, not long now.

Interesting that no one A+'d MGS4. Can't wait to read the text for myself.
